Efficacy of Plyometric Training on the Agility in Police Cadets
Keywords:Plyometric training, Agility, Agility Test.
Background: Plyometric training is a hybrid between strength and endurance training. This allows muscles
exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing power (speed-strength) which
ensures better agility in police cadets. Agility has been defined by the capacity to retain or determine the
location of body by shifting its direction rapidly in a sequence of movements. Agility, speed and explosive
power are qualifying components of physical fitness and desirable athletic performance, and play a key role
in most sports. Agility can enhance the coordination and regulation of locations of the body throughout
Objective: To study the efficacy of the 6-weeks and 12-weeks Plyometric training on the agility in police
Method: 40 Cadets aged above 18 years were grouped into two. A group continued their regular activities
while rest underwent 2 sessions of plyometric training every week for 6 weeks, along with their daily
activities. Analysis was then carried out with assessment of T-test Agility test, Illinois Agility Test, Edgren
Side Step Test. Study duration is 6 months and intervention duration is 12-weeks, hence participants will be
enrolled during first 3-months of study so 12 week intervention will be completed successfully. Assessment
will be done on 1st day of visit then at the end of 6th week and again at the end of 12th week. Participants
would have to perform 2 session of Plyometric Training per week in other group.
Result: Data will be analyzed using paired T-test.
Conclusion: Will be published after the results are analyzed.
